Refugees in Arts & Academia

dinsdag 4 juli


The Jonge Academie and UAF – Scholars at Risk have joined forces in order to bring public attention to the issue of refugees in the arts sector and academia, and to examine the current situation in Flanders. We are convinced that there are prospects to turn the current challenges into opportunities, both for refugees, the arts sector and academia.


4 July 2017  ·  16.30h – 20.30h
Palace of the Academies – Hertogsstraat 1 – 1000 Brussels


//      Testimonials by refugee academics about their own experiences
//      Debate with policy makers from political, academic and arts institutions
//      Artistic performances that will shed a new light on the topic

//      Networking reception


Meet artists, scholars, scientists and students on the move in an informal setting. Exchange ideas with refugees, colleagues, representatives of the academic and political authorities and the arts sector.
